16:40 (Carlisle) Stormy Pearl

The Rebecca Menzies-trained Stormy Pearl ought to go well in the opening Carleton Nursery Handicap.

The Night Of Thunder filly fairly bolted up at Hamilton in July when rated 55, earning her a hefty 8lb hike in the weights.

But she has since shown enough in nurseries at Ayr and Nottingham to suggest she can remain competitive and she has been dropped 1lb since her last run.

The speed she showed when making much of the running over six furlongs at Nottingham suggests the drop back to a minimum trip might see her in a better light.

17:15 (Carlisle) Dream Deal

In an extremely open contest, it might be worth chancing the lightly-raced Dream Deal to get off the mark at the sixth time of asking.

Jack Garritty's mount wasn't beaten far when third at Catterick and, off the same mark, he could find the required improvement to get involved in what admittedly is a better race.

Canaria Prince goes for the hat-trick and commands respect under a penalty, while Sixcor is another in-form contender to consider, with Harry Russell taking off a valuable 3lb once again

19:50 (Carlisle) Bouncing Bobby

Bouncing Bobby has been a model of consistency in recent months and the manner in which he stayed on when third at Redcar last time suggests that the stiffer finish on this occasion is likely to play to his strengths.

Aighear has to enter calculations after his triumph at Hamilton on Friday, while others for the shortlist include Jack Yeats and Oh So Chic.
